About the Book
To protect local neighborhoods and restore native habitats, All Bay Collective is rethinking the shoreline around San Leandro Bay with the creation of the "Estuary Commons." Through the construction of ponds, landforms, and expanded streams, the communities of Deep East Oakland, Alameda, and San Leandro will not only be able to adapt to sea-level rise and groundwater flooding, but will also have a network of flourishing greenways to enjoy for generations to come. ABC has worked closely with eight community organizations from East Oakland to move the communities from the margins to the center of the design and planning process. All Bay Collective was one of 10 teams competing in the Resilient by Design Bay Area Challenge in the San Francisco Bay Area from 2017-2018.
